Photo Request for ALL Families
In the event that we are unable to return to school in time to take individual student photos to meet the yearbook print deadline, we are starting to work on a backup plan. Please submit a photo of your child - alone, from the chest up, at a reasonably close distance, and on a plain background - to email@example.com. If you are unable to email it, please text to (704) 698-0691. Please include the correct spelling of your child's first/last name, grade level, and teacher.
Candid Photos Needed
Planning for the 2020-2021 MPTS yearbook is underway and we need your help! We are in need of candid photos representing all grade levels which may include online learning, participating in a Specials class activity at home, Traditional Giving parade, packet pick up, carpool, Spirit Rock, in person learning, etc. All photos may be submitted via Photo Post which is a private sharing site where only the MPTS yearbook committee will see the photos. To upload please follow the below instructions:
